Staff Training, Appraisal and Development Documents
Training and development activities are crucial to improving business performance and can help prevent excessive turnover. It is important that training and development policies are fair and clear both from an employee’s point of view and in terms of protecting the employer’s investment in staff.
The training plan helps employers to plan their training activities and the training review form gives structured feedback on the effectiveness of the training delivered.
Structured performance appraisals offer another way of improving a company’s performance. They provide an ideal opportunity to discuss with individual employees their strengths and weaknesses and agree new aims and objectives with them.
Performance appraisals should take place during, and at the end of, the probationary period and once or twice per year thereafter.
